Trump and Putin are set to speak by phone on Saturday morning. The call will be their first conversation since Trump took office on Jan. 20.

 

Trump has come under intense scrutiny for taking a softer position on the Kremlin than his predecessors, as well as for routinely questioning U.S. intelligence community reports that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election in favor of his candidacy.

Trump has also expressed a willingness to review U.S. sanctions placed on Russia after the country annexed the Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
